recognition, new word, news

Spotting someone you know in the distance whom you recognise not by their features but by their posture and gait.

"Kweedle" is the winner of a comptetion for a new word in the BBC 4 programme Word of Mouth. It means to lean back in a chair and rock backwards and forwards. It was submitted to the progamme by Kathy Desmond.

In a cafe I see a man reading his stars in a tabloid newspaper, while sucking on a cigarette. He folds the paper and offers it to me. As I am about to leave I say "no thanks." "Nothing special," he says with a smile.

I'm looking around to see if anyone else is doing Three Good Things. I found yours linking from Three Beautiful Things. These are very positive sites. Come check out my blog http://3for365.blogspot.com. May I link your site to mine? -Julia

Thank you for visiting. One tries to see the good before the bad, the beautiful before the ugly. Not always easy.You may of course link this site to yours. I am still trying to find a way of establishing links from mine to other sites. Joe
